I spent 2 nights in this hotel whilst in Prague during August 2013. I arrived late on my first evening and the hotel had organised a driver pick up which was cheaper than a taxi. Jiri welcomed me to the hotel and was probably the friendliest and most helpful person I have ever come across in my travels.
He was so warm and proud of the hotel he gave a tour upon arrival after offering me a welcome drink. Any request was greeted with a huge smile and very helpful information. All the staff were courteous and spoke english very well, including excusing themselves before conversing in Czech. I am singling Jiri out because he was an absolute stand out yet all the staff were wonderful.
The hotel itself is beautiful, looks like an old castle on the inside which was completely up my alley and varyingly different from anywhere else I stayed.
Whilst the positives of the place are fantastic there are a few points to consider which weren't great. I booked a double room for single use and had 2 single beds pushed together, no issue if the sheet is covering both beds but this was not the case even after I asked for it to be changed. Sleeping inbetween 2 single beds generally ends with you slipping down the gap. Secondly there is a church with bells that ring every 15 minutes and multiple on the hour so that can disturb sleep. Thirdly there is no air conditioning so in the middle of summer it was quite hot in the room, did prop the window open which was nice but then the noise ruined it. Pick a cooler month and you're laughing. Finally the shower head had good pressure but was a bit small so took a bit of effort to wash.
All minor points aside, the view from the terrace and the breakfast room is by far the best in Prague. Unbeatable. Definitely allocate the money to stay in this place as it is worth remembering Prague for what a beautiful city it is and having excellent accomodation helps. Not to mention the bed, pillow and sheets were the softest I experienced which truly made up for sleeping in a single bed.
Last little bonus is the 'hop on hop off' tours you get in most european cities, the one in prague has a stop right out the front of the hotel so you can't get lost!
Cannot recommend this place enough but do consider the above mentioned slights.
